The gang from ADELINE tried out the AutoND firmware 2.0 features on the Sony PXW-FS5 camera.

Sony PXW-FS5 New AutoND test from ADELICA on Vimeo.

A very easy clip to show how smooth are the transitions on internal ND of Sony PXW-FS5
The new AutoND feature just added with newly released firmware 2.0 is awesome.
It's possible now to shot run n gun style with fixed aperture and shutter, without caring about DR loss due to ISO value change
In this clip ND filter was automatically set to 1/128 from the beginning (sun exposed) till 1/4 for indoor ending

Note: Scene is manually exposed for outdoor light, where ND reached it's top at 1/128. You may feel that indoor is underexpose. This happened because minimum ND is 1/4 so it can't go brighter than this.

Camera: Sony PXW-FS5 firmware 2.0
Lens: Sigma 18-35 f1.8 Art
Clip recorded in 1080p50 50Mbps 4:2:2 10b – 35mm f 2.8 – 1/100 – ISO3200 – manual focus – Slog3/SGamut.Cine
